Best, worst Halloween candy for the teeth

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Oct 14, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Some Halloween candy is apparently worse for your teeth than others.

With the trick-or-treating holiday just around the corner, insurer Delta Dental has released a new list of the best and worst kinds of treats for the teeth.

Among the worst are sticky, chewy candies, such as candy corn and gummy bears.

So what's better?

Plain chocolate because it melts quickly, decreasing the time sugar is in contact with your teeth.

Sugar-free gum and lollipops are also better choices for the teeth.
